“Erotic” – Ugo Monye leaves presenter baffled with unexpected ‘x-rated’ remark

Jill Douglas found herself in the midst of some risqué banter on ITV as Ugo Monye dropped a cheeky remark ahead of England’s Six Nations clash with France.

The atmosphere was electric as Douglas helmed ITV’s coverage of the thrilling final match of the 2024 tournament on Saturday night.

With former England stars Jonny Wilkinson and Monye, along with ex-France forward Benjamin Kayser, by her side pitch-side in Lyon, things took an unexpected turn.

Kayser set the tone with his edgy commentary, labelling a pass as “erotic” during a pre-match analysis.

Not missing a beat, Douglas quipped, “That’s a first for a Six Nations program – describing a pass as ‘erotic’! But hey, it’s late on a Saturday night, so we’re all good.”

Monye then said: “This is the challenge for England and when you compare the benches, France’s bench is 200kg heavier than England’s. I mean that is wild. People might say ‘size doesn’t matter’ but honey, I’m telling you, in rugby, it really does.”

Douglas then quipped once again: “It’s gone very x-rated here tonight hasn’t it?”

Her words were met with laughter from all three pundits.

England player ratings vs France:

15. George Furbank – 5

Unfortunate to depart as early as he did, as he injured his calf muscle and departed after seven minutes. (Off for Marcus Smith, 7).

14. Tommy Freeman – 7

Too high off the line with the early blitz defence, as Gael Fickou sends the ball through his legs to Freeman’s surprise. Brilliant early runs, as he searches up to the French gain-line. Almost handed Alex Mitchell and assist, but his 48th minute offload didn’t go to hands. Thought that he was away with a break at 69 minutes, but the assistant referee called the play back for a deliberate knock on. Great finish in the corner, as he silenced Lyon with his 74th minute try.

13. Henry Slade – 6.5

Strong searching run at eight minutes, as he broke the gain-line and asked questions of Cyril Baille. Sent a silky pass to Ollie Lawrence, as England crossed over just before the half-time break, a strong assist on the 40th minute. Withdrawn for the returning Manu Tuilagi, as England fought power with power. (Off 60- Tuilagi)

12. Ollie Lawrence – 8

Good tackling from the off as France look to hit up the centre channels. Thumping collision with Damian Penaud, as the two collide after five minutes. Ran a brilliant line to score on the stroke of half-time, and breathe life into England’s game. Started the second half on fire, as he powered over from close range to score once again.

11. Elliot Daly – 6.5

Back in to the starting line-up as Manny Feyi-Waboso is out with a concussion. Claimed the high balls confidently, but swamped when trying to stretch his legs. Returned the favour with good kick chase and well timed tackles on the receivers. Vocal on the touchlines, as the assistant referee handed a line-out to France.

10. George Ford – 7.5

Not afraid to calm things down, and called for the first mark of the match with the play at an immense rate. Slotted the opening points of the match, and did well to bring down a full-pace Charles Ollivon, as he grounded the flanker at 30 minutes. Demanded more from his team, as France began to take control after the hour mark. Quick hands to Smith, to set up Freeman’s late try, before nailing the conversion from the corner.
